King is my newly hatched Silver Campine chick. In the spring of 2013, I received 16 hatching eggs in the mail from Wisher1000. Despite Wisher's wonderful packaging, shipping was really hard on the eggs and King was the only chick to hatch.
I was really excited when he started chirping and wiggling in the egg. And then a pip!
He continued to wiggling and chirp after he pipped and then the next morning he began zipping!
And he is out!
Once King was all dry and I knew that the other eggs were not going to hatch, I moved him to the brooder.
He liked to cuddle and play with his friend mirror.
He still chirped a lot and seemed lonely so we went and picked up two Barred Rock chicks from a local farm. The Barred Rocks were a few days older then him and twice his size so I thought that they were going to pick on him. However, when I put them in the brooder with him, he started attacking them. King continually pecked their combs and eyes. I guess he was just showing them who was in charge and that it was his brooder because later that night he calmed down and now they get along great!
Phil turned out to be a rooster also so he went to a new home.
King's name used to be Faith but then she turned out to be a he so we had to change his name.
